Every author has her favorite scenes. Today Six Sentence Sunday snippet comes from one of mine in Reckless in Moonlight, a contemporary erotic romance about a divorcee who becomes involved with a much younger man. In this excerpt, Dana just had sex with Lon for the first time He’s waiting for her on the patio. (Yes, there are seven sentences here. Six Sunday ends in January, so what the hell!)
As attracted as she was to Lon, she could not allow this madness to continue. She would bring him a beer, chat a bit, and then yawn and shove him out the gate. She’d chalk this up to a midlife crisis exacerbated by a full moon.
So why was she racing to her bedroom and rooting through her drawer for a pair of sexy lace undies? The devil tittered and scrambled back to his perch. She yanked a flirty dress off a hanger and pulled it on. I just want to look presentable when I kick his ass out.
Reckless in Moonlight Blurb:
Forty-five-year-old Dana Markus knows a full moon makes people act crazy. It’s why they call the power company with stories about aliens disrupting the earth’s climate. It probably explains why her ex-husband left her for a girl scarcely older than their college-age daughter. It definitely accounts for why she impulsively invited the neighbor’s hunk of a son over for a skinny-dip. And why 28-year-old Lon Corbin accepted.
Lon doesn’t think much of the mass of rock orbiting the earth, but he does think he’s the luckiest man alive when the sexy divorcee he’s admired from afar invites him into her pool. He knows she has reservations about their age difference, but he’s planning to show her in a very physical way how good they could be together if she’ll give him the chance.
But when their simmering private passion boils over into a public relationship, family pressures and schemes threaten to split the couple apart.
The moon brought them together — but can it save them?
